THANK YOU to all of our sponsors, partners, amazing team of high school volunteers and community members for coming out and supporting ACDC’s Annual Films at the Gate, which revives the tradition of the Chinatown movie house. This annual event is organized and run by youth! The festival revitalizes Chinatown, brings together neighbors of diverse backgrounds and ages, and introduces kung fu films to a new generation.

Thank you to our generous sponsors and supporters!

This program is in part supported by a grant from the Boston Cultural Council, a local agency which is funded by the Mass Cultural Council, and administered by the Mayor's Office of Arts and Culture.

Directions to the festival:

We suggest taking public transit if possible, due to limited street parking in Chinatown. The Chinatown Gate is closet to the Chinatown T stop on the Orange Line, to South Station on the Red Line, and to the Tufts Medical Center stop on the Silver Line.
